really liked it
Read in February, 2011

I understand that this was the first novel written by Langston Hughes. It stands the test of time as I'm reading it 80 years after it was first written ... and I enjoyed it very much. It shares a story about a Black family living in a small Kansas town. The timeframe is before the second world war and the characters are not much different than those we know today in 2011.

Anyhow, I highly recommend that this book be part of the library of any African American family with young pre-teen children. If you haven't read it yet ... make your plans to do so!
